Cyperus Baby Tut Umbrella Grass

 Cyperus Baby Tut Umbrella Grass

Baby Tut is an evergreen or neutral grass.  Evergreen or neutral grasses are usually plants that look like grasses but aren’t actually classified as grasses, they are generally called grass-like plants.

Where temperatures get colder than 25 degrees F, the plants should be treated as annuals.

 Once the grass turns brown it can either be removed immediately or removed in the spring. It should not be expected to live through the winter and begin growing again in the spring.

The plant can be planted in pots, along the waters edge of a pond, or even in a pond. The crown of the plant should never be covered in water and in fact both of these varieties can thrive in water as shallow as a few inches. The purpose is to keep the bulk of the soil or root mass wet.

The root ball can be submerged but it isn’t necessary. If the plant is put into a pot I would suggest plugging the hole or holes in the bottom of the pot to keep as much water as possible in the pot

In areas where winter temperatures remain above 25 degrees it should be considered a perennial and the following information should be useful.

Use in water gardens, landscapes and mixed containers


A water garden friendly-grass that can be planted in the landscape as well

Plant in sun or partial sun area

Grows to a height of 18-24 inches tall.

Annual in most areas except Zone 9-11

Baby Tut has won numerous awards , and is related to King Tut, which is a larger version of the plant.

I have just the right place for this plant , right near my water garden area , this will really be an attractive addition.

Happy Gardening
